Young Voices 2018 (01-02-2018)
Thursday 1st February, Year 6, Year 5 and Year 4 travelled on a coach to the O2 arena. Excited for our upcoming performance we entered the O2 and took our seats. Surprisingly, we were joined by 7942 children. After we had a deserving break. At last it was show time and we were joined by some fantastic performers by Urban Stride (who are some amazing dancers) one of the lead singers from clean bandit singing Symphony, Alfie Sheeran, who was only 16 years old singing Chasing Cars and I’m yours, Natalie Williams, who sang Extraordinary and Anytime you need a friend and a acapella with a beat boxer. Not forgetting the young voices choir who were dancing and singing their hearts out even the adults were had a little boogie! Finally we were all exhausted an arrived home safety after a hard exhausting day!

Houses of Parliament (31-01-2018)
On Wednesday 31st January Year 6 went on a school trip to the Houses Of Parliament.
Firstly, we got off the train at Westminster and saw Big Ben. Unfortunately it was being worked on, and there was scaffolding all around it. Next we arrived at House of Parliament .
As we went in we went to the main lobby. After we look around, we went to go and see a debate in the House of Lords about Brexit.
After we went into do our own debate on homework in the house of commons.
Meanwhile the other group were at the house of committee rooms looking around. We went to the Westminster Hall which is the oldest place that has survived the war.
When the builders were renovating they found tennis balls from King Henry VIII’s times and they were made of pigs intestines and raped in human hair.
It was cold in there but we all liked it. We all got a picture under the arch to remember such an amazing time.
The local MP Jon Cruddas came in and told all about his job. Then we held the opportunity to ask him questions.
Lastly, we would like to say a big thank you to the teachers, Governors and our lovely head teacher Mrs Schaberg that help and came along with us.

Firstly, we played Scotts in a short but intense 10 mins match. Up front, we were tackling like crazy. We kept the ball up and finished 0-0.
Determined to win the match, we took a corner and Hannah scored a fantastic goal, leaving the result 1-0 to St. Alban’s.
After some inspiring talk from Mr. Inayat, we were ready for the next match. Mary managed to block a free kick. The result is 0-0.
In the next game, we were exhausted but we still played fabulously, keeping the ball away from the goal. We finished the match 0-0.
After that, all the teams were called over to hear the results. It became very intense but we found out that we were going to the quarter finals, as we finished top out of all the schools with six points.
Although everyone played brilliantly, girl of the tournament was Hannah.
